Power of the Swing Vote

I saw this over on Angry Asian Man: “Power of the Swing Vote last week. Power of the swing Vote is a short documentary is produced by Projekt NewSpeak and includes interviews with Asian Americans Bobby Lee, Tia Carrere, Russell Peters, Jabbawockeez, Kaba Modern, Carrie Ann Inaba, Cheryl Burke, B.D. Wong, Rex Lee, Michelle Krusiec, Congressman Mike Honda, and more.

What was pretty inspiring was the footage from Senator-to-be Jim Webb’s 2006 Virginia election results party – seeing how his race was decided by 0.5% of the vote and where Asian Americans in Virginia voted 76% for Jim Webb over George Allen. Asian Americans comprise approximately 5% of Virgina’s population, and makes up 16% in Northern Virginia – in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. Virginia and Asian Americans could elect the next president of the United States – they can be the swing vote in this election. So don’t forget to vote tomorrow – Tuesday, November 4th, if you haven’t already done so!
